Hi everybody!
 
THE "M" WORD, co-written by Mary Steelsmith and Steve Lee, will premere at the Lakeshore Players Theatre's 3rd Annual Ten Minute play festival in White Bear Lake, Minnesota.  The show runs Friday-Sunday, June 1-3
 
Here is a link to Lakeshore Players:

THE "M" WORD wonders –
What if the famous superstition of the stage is true? By uttering the title of William Shakespeares Scottish Play", three of world's greatest actors find themselves condemned to perform the work as a classic threesome of buffoonery: the Three Stooges.

Thanks, Arc --

It would be so nice to attend.

We'll just have to get a seltzer bottle to squirt at each other here in L.A., while the performance is going on in White Bear Lake.

I was able to see Lakeshore's 10-minute festival this past weekend.  This was a fun piece, Mary, and definitely enjoyed by the crowd!

Thanks, Jim!

Hopefully nobody got wounded during the performance you saw.

Speaking of 'saws' -- Steve and I were a bit worried after receiving this email from our director:

here's an email from our director.

 
The show had a great opening, however the "curse" did rear it's ugly head.  We had no problems during any of the rehearsals, I never even thought that this would happen.  However, during the opening of the show the actor playing Louis cut his finger on the saw and it started to resemble a bit of the real Macbeth.  Don't worry the actor is OK and we are making changes and taping the area on the saw's blade that he holds so this won't happen again.  But, I just thought that we had perpetuated the curse, I feel bad myself about it and I thought that we had prepared ourselves for every possibility, but I was wrong.
 
The response to the show was very good and I could tell that the audience really enjoyed it.

 
In the play, we referred to a saw, but NEVER EVER wrote one in as a prop!
Yikes!

Yes, I remember them having both a saw and a hammer, though the saw did feel a little superfluous.  Now I see why. :-)  Funny, I too never thought while watching the piece about the "curse" in terms of them saying MacBeth during the play, but that is somewhat ironic!

And I believe the director (a friend/colleague) believes in the curse!  I thoroughly enjoyed it Mary - blood and all - of course when the blood got mixed in with the chicken feathers from the Chicken play - well - there's a whole new play to be written!
